Enrich Data

Enrich Data uses the Esri GeoEnrichment service to give you demographic and landscape data for the people, places, and businesses associated with your point, line, or area data locations.

Examples

An analyst has crime counts for hexagon grid cells overlaying her city. To create a crime rate, she uses Enrich Data to obtain the number of people living within each hexagon.

Library staff want to ensure program offerings at each library branch effectively serve local communities. By using Enrich Data to gather information about the people living in neighborhoods surrounding each library, they get a clear picture of who the potential branch patrons are. This allows them to more effectively design their program offerings to match local community needs.

Usage notes

Use the Choose layer to enrich parameter to add data to a selected layer from the map. The data can be point, line, or area features.

The Select lifestyle and demographic data parameter includes a button to open the data browser. In the data browser, you can select the country where your data is located as well as one or more variables from categories such as Population, Education, and Spending. For information about supported countries, see the Esri Demographics help.

If your input features are points or lines, a third parameter, Set distance value to expand search area, will be available. A search distance in meters, kilometers, feet, or miles must be entered to run Enrich Data for points and lines. The default distance units will be based on the units set in your ArcGIS Online profile.

Enrich Data uses the ArcGIS Online GeoEnrichment service. Credits will be used when you enrich your data using the GeoEnrichment service.

Limitations

You must have GeoEnrichment privileges to use Enrich Data.
